Barnaby Joyce backs Government funding coal-power stations following Malcolm Turnbull's Press Club address

Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce says he would have no problem with the Government funding the development of future coal-power stations.

Mr Joyce told the ABC that while using government funds to build new stations had not yet been proposed, he would "have no problems" with the idea.

"I reckon we should be building new coal-fire power stations," he said.
